• Make Your Own Natural Mould & Mildew Cleaner

    September 11, 2018 • CLEAN, DIY RECIPES

    Vinegar is a really effective way at cleaning mould naturally. While bleach simply bleaches the mould white, vinegar works to kill the mould spore, and if used regularly can even prevent the mould and mildew from coming back.

    Combining vinegar and essential oils known for their antifungal and antiseptic properties, this DIY mould and mildew cleaner is really easy to make and will leave a clean and fresh scent.

    You will also need a spray bottle.


    1. Add the vinegar and essential oils to the spray bottle and shake well to mix. Add a label to the spray bottle if desired. Your mould and mildew cleaner is now ready to use.

    How to Use

    As mould and mildew is toxic, it is best to use a face mask and gloves when cleaning it.

    Shake the bottle well before each use and spray on the surface to be cleaned. Let it sit for about an hour before wiping with a dry cloth. Use a scrub brush to remove any tough areas. Spray again with the cleaner and allow to air dry (no need to rinse).

    Tip: Add some clove essential oil to the cleaner for added mould killing power. Learn more about using clove essential oil to remove mould here >

    To reduce the chance of mould appearing again in the future:

    • Use an exhaust fan during and after showering
    • Keep humidity in the bathroom under 50%. A dehumidifier can help.
    • Spray this mould and mildew cleaner every week and allow it to air dry as a preventative.


    As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

    Pregnant women should exercise caution when using essential oils. If unsure, please seek medical advice from your health care professional.
